Earlier, the Governor appreciated role of former Karachi mayor Naimatullah Khan in development of the metropolis, and claimed that Mustafa Kamal disappointed the city.

“I want to give today’s representative an example of an honest and visionary mayor Naimatullah Khan with whom I have worked. He was my senior, with his master plans he played a vital role in development of Karachi, but later his successors disappointed the city,” he said, in a veiled reference to Syed Mustafa Kamal, who remained mayor of Karachi after Naimatullah Khan from 2005 to 2010.

Dr. Ishrat-ul-Ibad Khan’s views came two days after Mustafa Kamal, called him a ‘criminal’ urging federal government to place the governor on exit-control list (ECL).

The governor brushed aside all allegations and advised Kamal to ‘consult a psychiatrist’.  Samaa
